Known as both the “commercial, cultural and retail capital of the South Coast” and a “flourishing export epicentre”, Southampton is undergoing its most significant change in its long history. Although shipping still plays an important role in the local economy, other sectors like business services, retail and property are growing rapidly. The city skyline continues to change as new high-rise developments are constructed.
Just 75 miles drive along the M3 from London, Southampton also benefits from reliable rail links to the rest of the country. The local Southampton Airport is home to a number of budget airlines, connecting the area to several other cities on Mainland Europe.
This ease of access makes Southampton a useful location for staging presentations and product unveilings, or simply holding meetings between remote-working staff. Available on a pay as you use basis, Regus operate serviced meeting rooms in several locations across the city. Such options include the centrally located Cumberland House, or you can accommodate international visitors without leaving Southampton Airport.
If your business decides to make a more permanent base in the city, each of our business centres also offers serviced offices, which include furniture, business grade Internet and the option to expand in one low monthly fee. For micro businesses, co-working and hot desking in one of our shared offices provides you with the same benefits, but at an even lower cost.
